Melissa Glover – 5 Years With Encore

Here at Encore we like to celebrate our employees and highlight their amazing achievements & contributions to the business.

This month we spoke to Melissa Glover, a Senior Consultant from our Leeds branch who recently celebrated her 5 year anniversary with Encore.

Melissa tells us of her experience with Encore & how she’s progressed in her role….


“On the 10th September 2013 I embarked on what would be a highly challenging yet rewarding journey. I first stepped through the doors at encore Leeds with no previous Recruitment experience to take up a trainee business development consultant role.”

“Coming into a role with no experience was really nerve racking at the time but during the interview process I was assured I’d receive plenty of training to get up to speed with the sector and be able to hit the ground running. I’m a naturally ambitious person so as well as the training, I was interested in the growth plans of Encore as I wanted to make sure there were clear routes to progression and I could grow my career in-line with the business.”

“Over the last 5 years, the quality of the training I have received has enabled me to not only enhance my skills but mixed with my natural competitiveness and eagerness to succeed, I am now a Senior Consultant responsible for the day to day duties of the Leeds Branch. I have achieved so much since 2013, but my biggest achievement would be winning the Employee of The Year in 2014. To receive such an accolade after only a year in my role was such a great feeling and to do it in front of all my colleagues at the end of year gala in Birmingham was a great experience.”

“Encore have grown at a rapid rate since I first started and continue to do so but their values have remained the same. It has a warm family feeling considering the size of the business. I’m excited that I can grow my own career aligned with encore’s ambitious growth plans.”

“The growth of the Leeds branch now means I have a team of 7 which I look over and support. Encore is a great company to work and if I had to describe Encore in 3 words, I would say:”

  • Challenging
  • Supportive
  • Engaging

“I’m now looking to build on my professional & personal development with the aim to gain another promotion soon.”

“I look forward to seeing what new challenges lay ahead!”
